    7 juillet 1953, un jeune médecin tout juste diplômé fait ses adieux à sa mère sur le quai de la gare de Buenos Aires. Ernesto Guevara part pour un voyage qui changera son destin. Deux ans plus tard, au Mexique, il croise la route d'un révolutionnaire cubain, Fidel Castro. Et le voilà embarqué, de nuit, un soir de novembre 1956, sur un bateau de fortune qui le mène à Cuba. Là-bas, dans ce pays qui n'est pourtant pas le sien, Guevara construira sa légende et deviendra le Che : guérillero, comandante, tombeur de la dictature, défenseur du peuple, implacable chef révolutionnaire et ennemi juré de l'impérialisme américain.

    Che Guevara's legend is unmatched in the modern world. Since his assassination in 1967 at the age of 39, the Argentine revolutionary has become an internationally famed icon, as revered as he is controversial. A Marxist ideologue, he sought to end global inequality by bringing down the American capitalist empire through armed guerrilla warfare - and has few rivals in the Cold War era as an apostle of change. In Che: A Revolutionary Life , Jon Lee Anderson and Jose Hernandez reveal the man behind the myth, creating a complex portrait of this passionate idealist. Adapted from Anderson's masterwork, Che transports us from young Ernesto's medical school days to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution; from his place of power alongside Castro to his disastrous sojourn in the Congo, and his violent end in Bolivia. Through renowned Mexican artist Jose Hernandez's drawings, we feel the bullets fly past in Cuba; smell the smoke of Castro's cigars; and scrutinize the face of the weary guerrilla as he is called 'Comandante' for the first time. With astonishing precision, colour, and drama, Che makes us first-hand witnesses to the revolutionary life and times of this historic figure. Combining Anderson's unprecedented access and research with Hernandez's emotionally gripping artwork, Che resurrects the man for a new generation of readers.

  • Le Soudan, le plus vaste État d'Afrique, vit une période cruciale de son histoire. En 2005, un accord de paix entre le Nord et le Sud du pays a mis fi n à la plus longue guerre civile africaine, puis un référendum a permis au Sud de devenir indépendant en 2011. Mais pour l'antique royaume égyptien de Cush, baptisé Soudan du Sud et reconnu par l'Onu comme le 193e état membre, la situation n'a guère évolué : malnutrition, personnes déplacées par milliers, insécurité. À cela s'ajoutent des luttes pour la démarcation de la frontière, la répartition de la manne pétrolière et des terres agricoles, le partage des eaux du Nil. Oublié du monde, le Soudan du Sud reste l'un des pays les plus pauvres de la planète, une situation que Cédric Gerbehaye a captée avec l'obsession d'un travail en profondeur.
